The UK’s Nuclear Industry Association (NIA), the country’s nuclear
industry trade group, has appointed Tom Greatrex as its new chief executive, to replace the retiring Keith Parker, the London-based organisation said.
Mr Greatrex will take up the post 1 February 2016. He is a former member of parliament for the Labour party – representing a constituency in Scotland – and served as shadow energy minister during the 2010-15 Conservative-led coalition government, the NIA said. In his shadow energy minister role, Mr Greatrex served as the main political opposition spokesman for nuclear issues, the NIA said. Mr Greatrex lost his parliamentary seat to the Scottish National Party in 2015.
